the next big question when casey is released where she's going to go. did mason give any hint about that? >> he said plans were being made. he would not tell me what they were. but he is concerned for her safety. they all are. they do realize the public opinion in this nation deems casey anthony maybe one of the most hated women in america right now. so they are taking security precautions for her safety. >> i want to play some of what he said about their fears for her safety. let's listen. >> sure. yeah. everybody around her knows we have to be concerned for her safety. there's a lot of nuts out there that don't believe in the constitution of the united states, don't believe in the jury system. all you have to do is go downstairs on the sidewalk and you'll see. >> he wouldn't say, though, what precautions they're taking to ensure her safety, right? >> no. he wouldn't even tell me where she's going to go. he does not think she can live in orlando, florida or even the state of florida, and wonders where in the united she can become anonymous and just sort of blend into the society. he had
a big bite mark. >> is that a valid excuse? that maybe some staffer read it? she didn't read the whole thing? >> i find that mind-boggling. such a statement would scream out to you as just incredibly wrong. that you cannot -- if you are a first-year student in high school and you read that statement, that's got to send up some alarms to you that says -- wait a minute. we can't sign this sort of thing. and particularly, not so much probably in the republican primary. if she does get into the general election, this sort of thing with independent voters just kills you dead. it's a nonstarter because it's such a fringe sort of way of thinking of things. >> it's also interesting that -- >> i would say that's probably why they didn't look at it. because i agree with you. had i read this and any of the republicans i talked to, they would say -- what the heck is this? don't sign that. i just think someone wasn't paying attention when they were doing their job. >> even in the explanation this group has put out, where they retracted it, they did the classic -- this can be -- i'm sorry if you mis
. i can't help but be a little cynical here. because we find out the president has a big birthday bash scheduled for august 3rd, celebrities flying in from all over. and lo and behold, august 2nd is the deadline for getting something done so that he can have this massive -- maybe the biggest fundraising dinner in history for a birthday celebration". >> and here's iowa congressman steve king. >> it's not default. they've been calling it default to try to stampede people into taking a bad deal here in this congress. the american people understand this. they understand at least intuitively that it would be the president who would willfully default if there's to be a default. i'd like to think the investor markets understand that, too. >> keeping them honest, there's little reason to think that's true. and plenty of people in the gop establishment and the business community sending up warning flairs. officials at the bond rating company standard & poors today briefing freshman republicans about what might happen. political reporting tonight they were cautioned that one possibility is "a de
this thing started last sunday. as you say, the president has said he wants this big deal but this thing broke up today, the meeting ended with the president telling these leader toss go back to their members and ask them what do they think can pass and then report back to the president with something that they believe can pass by this saturday morning. they're not even having a meeting tomorrow. now, despite all that i am told by my sources that there's not a lot of optimism that this particular negotiating process here at the white house is going to actually end up leading to the real deal, and a lot of effort and attention is now turning to a different process that's happening in the u.s. senate and another alternate deal that's being worked out between the two senate leaders that could instead end up raising the debt ceiling. a lot of hope is centered there, anderson. >> basically what is that deal? what is that negotiation based on? that's harry reid and mitch mcconnell. >> it's a little complicated but it would effectively raise the debt ceiling which would allow for spending cuts
save hundreds! yeah, that'll certainly stick with me. we'll take it. go, big money! i mean, go. it's your break, honey. same coverage, more savings. now, that's progressive. call or click today. >>> 15 days until the treasury says it will run out money. a tea party leader says don't raise the debt seeing and he says president obama is lying about the consequences if we don't. "keeping them honest" about what many republicans believe is central to solving the long-term problem. a constitutional amendment to balance the budget. they vote on "cup, cap and balance." cutting spending to 2004 levels and caps it and freezes it right there and calls for a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. >> all that we ask in this bill is that we simply allow the states to weigh in, should the federal government live under a balanced budget amendment. should they do that? >> i don't understand why people won't vote for the a balanced budget amendment because it's the only discipline that will ever force the politics of washington to meet the responsibilities of washington. >> let's do somethi
't default and if we did it's not a big problem. they're wrong. you also have a big number of democrats and much larger number who say it doesn't matter if we spend the nation into bankruptcy. we won't go bankrupt. they're wrong. and that's even worse because there are more of them who believe that than the small number of republicans who are willing to countenance the fall. >> let me ask you something. >> let me be clear. these polls, can i just be clear about something? this is washington equivalent. polls are not equivalent. the public blames the congressional republicans much more than the president, all right? that's a fact that cannot be disputed. we should not get off with the facts are. it's not a pox on both the house. it's overwhelmingly the public blames the congressional republicans. >> james, as somebody who's made his living with polls you know as well as i do that there's not only one poll in town. there's a bunch of them. >> three of them. you can look at all three. [ overlapping speakers ] >> his numbers have been dropping. the president is not -- nobody's faring well i
and taking on the big issues. and that he called on the group to take on this challenge and then called the meeting to an end. no matter how you read that, it's clearly an increase in tensions on day three of these debt negotiations with no sign of real progress with the clock ticking. and i do have it confirmed that this president really did say -- >> part of president obama's plan that he's been very kind of calculating in the way he's gone about these talks, intimating or letting the republicans talk about spending cuts and then only later on really being aggressive and pressing for revenue razors for tax increases down the road. how does the white house respond to that? is there any truth to that from the white house perspective? >> well, look, if this were part of plan he'd have a deal by you because no president wants this kind of debt threat hanging over their head. he cannot benefit from having any kind of default at this point in his presidency. so you could accuse the white house of playing tactics instead of having a strategy. you could accuse the president of going out and u
in just nothing but blatant character assassination. and that, i think, was the big problem in this case. they didn't have -- and they had a sequestered jury. and apparently the kind of guilt by osmosis that they would have seen if they weren't sequestered didn't seep into that jury room. instead of people saying that this is a tragedy, because anytime that you have a little girl who dies, that's a tragedy. i think the true tragedy is when people say we're never going to know what really happened and she should have been convicted. that to me is absolutely inexplicable. if you don't know what happened, how can you convict somebody beyond a reasonable doubt and put them to death? i mean, it makes no sense whatsoever. maybe it's good for iran or north korea but not in america. >> i'm going to ask everyone to stick around. we'll come back to you shortly. let us know what you think. we're on facebook or follow me on twitter @ john king cnn. more up next, more on how the defense did, in that vein we'll highlight some of the many statements casey anthony made that were simply not true, includi
ceiling, pay its bills based on big-ticket items. that would be interest on the debt. social security, medicare and medicaid, defense spenders. more than $30 billion. unemployment insurance. what you'd get under the big-ticket scenario is a drawing off the line. that's your $172 billion. the government is out of money if you don't increase the debt ceiling. what gets cut? military pay. wouldn't get their checks under this scenario. veterans checks, irs refund. if you're waiting for one you wouldn't get it. nutrition services, foods stamps, wouldn't get paid. federal salaries, education department, other and you heard him mention foreign aid to the palestinians. you have to make the choices and cut it off right here. that's one way. suppose you decided instead we'll put a priority on the social safety net. under this scenario, interest gets paid, social security gets paid, medicare and medicaid and those nutrition services that got cut off last time, you could pay them. housing grants would go out. veterans affairs, unemployment, education and tuition assistance. but under this set of
